“Once upon a time in videsh, there was a student named Arun who was among the plethora of students who had gone to the States to pursue higher education. He came from a very humble background and his family earned just enough to satisfy their basic necessities. He was a very bright student and had come out with flying colors in his under-graduation. He felt the next logical step would be to pursue masters in his desired field.
Although not having sufficient funds to sponsor his Masters education, he did not give up on his dream. He researched extensively and asked a lot of people around and finally he came to know of an organization that supported the students whose families could not cover all the expenses incurred there. The difference between other organizations and this organization was that this organization gave student loans at a very less rate of interest. He was delighted and was sure that this organization will give wings to his dreams. He completed all the formalities and was finally given the loan. His parents did not have to bear the burden of the expenses and they were very happy to see their son pursuing his dream. As he did not have to worry on the finances part, he could totally focus on his studies. He performed extremely well in his masters which helped him get a job almost immediately after his graduation.
At present Arun is working in one of the greatest IT giants in the world and is earning a very decent salary. As he knew how vital role the organization had played in his life, he decided to donate a large sum of money to that organization. His only thought while doing so was that no student should give up on his or her dream just because of lack of finances. As that organization had been a ray of hope for Arun, he also wanted to be a ray of hope for many other students. Hence, no student ever faced problem in future to pursue dreams.”
